What to do at 80… Maybe a little of this…

So I hit 80 the other day… you may have read that far

This left me in a quandary.

I have promised myself I will quest right through Northrend before I instance or raid.

I have promised myself I will revisit the old world before I Instance and Raid the newest world.

I have promised myself I will be strong…

But I am weak… (more…)

365!

I don’t know about you, but I have always liked the idea that I could work an 8 hour day, but if I finish my work in 6 hours, I could just go home.

Unfortunately I am not in that position in my real life… but could I be in that position in my blog life?

You see this post is post 365 366!

So I have written and posted (yeah, 365 366 doesn’t include the drafts and abandoned posts) a leap year’s worth of material in 285 days… actually, if you only consider my time in front of the PC, that’s 365 366 posts in 232 days (I was in India for a couple of months) (more…)

Another one of those, “I did this, I got that posts”, but my screenshot trigger finger is itchy, and I will be buggered if I aren’t going to torture you with my “holiday slideshow”.

So pull up a pew, prop your head at just the right angle to convince me you are still awake, and let those “sleep nods” acknowledge your appreciation for my awesomeness!

I know it’s a small thing, but I just love the way people are knocking up campfires around Dalaran while doing their cooking dailies… it makes it so much more convenient than heading back to the inn to cook up the latest dish before doing the delivery boy thing.

Latest in the range of Mage disguises is the Cute Dead Chick disguise. (more…)

I noticed some yellow [FredDagg has achieved x Achievement] this morning.

Normally I wouldn’t pay any attention to it… I mean I am so busy watching my achievements scroll by, I don’t have time to “Gratz” anyone else… but this one caught my eye…

Dailies are the Raw Prawn…

unobtainable-recipes

…and I say:

Don’t come the raw prawn with me mate!

Maybe I have just eaten a batch of Bad Clams, but I am very, very sick of dailies.

Bad Clams make you angry. (more…)

If you haven’t already gained this achievement it probably sounds difficult.

Slay, Slaughter, Kill, Butcher (you choose the word) 15 Turkeys in a short period of time.

He’ll, you may not have even seen 15 Turkeys in your time in Northrend.

Unless of course you have been questing in the Howling Fjords.

Joining the Dots (take 2)


Joining the Dots: my love for ? and !

Larisa wrote a fantastic post (as usual) the other day about those ? and ! and how they have shrunk her world, and playing experience.

After reading through it, I found I didn’t agree, I said as much in her comments, but felt I needed to reveal the truth to you all.

You see, those poor ? and ! are sitting targets, easy to see and easy to blame for not experiencing the whole World of Warcraft Experience.  In fact, if anything I have found recently that they are the opposite, not restrictors, rather keys to open the doors of Warcraft.

How can this be? (more…)

Loved by Gnomes


Well, I can finally get back to the grind to 80!

Since the Achievements went in (well before actually, but I just needed a motivator), I have wanted to be loved by Gnomes World wide.  But the Gnomes are a difficult bunch to please.

  • Dwarves… easy, way too easy considering their dour demeanor.
  • Draenei (The Exiled Ones – Oi!, get your hands of that title.. that’s the Gnomes!) .. Easy, I guess because they were so late on the scene they are happy to have any friends at all.
  • Night Elves… they throw their reputation to the wind… seems they are like Druids in general and like it when you go killing (diseased) trees… and reward for it!
  • Humans… Pretty easy too, but I must admit I left them hanging on.
  • But Gnomes… geeez, Exiles alright! Spread across the world in some of the remotest of places, refusing to be anyone’s friend easily!

But… but… but… I finally won them over.

So last night I log in to knock of some quests and do some rep dailies.

There appeared to be some issues since the patch:

  • Lag….intermittent but pretty bad
  • Outfitter….broken
  • Auctioneer….broken

I could have played around trying to fix the addons but decided these little annoyances don’t matter, they will be fixed in due course.  I had worked out how to add an item to an outfitter set by playing a little bit.

So I  decide why sit and complain about the lag and the broken addons. Use my time to something usueful and knock of the easy daily rep quests on my list. (more…)
